To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether his Department plans to ban the use of internal combustion engine vehicles by a target date.

Answered on

The government has no plans to ban internal combustion engine vehicles. On 18 November, as part of his Ten Point Plan, the Prime Minister announced that we will end the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030, with all new cars and vans being fully zero emission from 2035.

This will not affect the second-hand car market.
